Got the obit you submitted added to her memorial. Thank you. Hope this finds you doing well. Got lots of genealogy stuff done with all this rain we had I couldn't be outdoors that much. Hope this finds you doing well.

Wow! Thank you for all your work. Thank you so much for the information. I was unaware of her first husband and her child. It has filled many holes in the information that I had. The wedding photo I have for her must be with her first husband. My I add Jacob Scherer photo to my private tree on Ancestry (It is shard with others that are not). I always credit the photographer and source of the picture. So if it is shared the credits also share.
Your hard work on my behalf is really appreciated.

Ephraim Dye Grave
Thanks for looking into the burial site for Ephraim Dye. He was living in Michigan around that time and was married, so it's a mystery as to what he was doing in Springfield. There are some things we will just never know.

RE: Middendorf-Wenneborg
Thank you so much.I appreciate all the hard work involved, that the people on Find a Grave site do, being 85 and not able to drive puts the dampers on
this kind of research.
Thank you again,

Thanks for the tip - however the name has been corrected so since this memorial was entered earlier, I have deleted the memorial that I added. I did add my photo to the above memorial. I think you are right to delete living persons from obituaries.

RE: Mary Crane 29457325
Hi BjJ, thanks again for all your help. I sent an edit for changing her place of death. The reason I am researching many family members in Mechanicsburg area is because I discovered an official recorded connection of my 2nd great-grandmother, Nancy E Miller and her father Nathan Miller. I am now in the process of getting all of those family member records for aunts, uncles and 1st cousins. The ISJR paper on line is such a great help. I now have the Miller family line dating back to 1743 in VA. Have a great 4th of July. Your friend Walt

Hi again. The photo's were taken in 2001. I believe the stones to still be there but overtaken by the foiliage nearby that you described. That was the case in 2001. With some diligent effort I am confidant they can be rediscovered. The stones that are off their respective foundations are not very heavy. If you could get some generous assistance, the stones could be restored to their original position. Please keep me posted on your success. As always I would like to be put on your list of candidates should you decide to transfer the management of my Hickox family. Thanks so much cousin. Bobby Clyde Hickox

RE: Solomon Allen
After all your work, I can't find where he was in my tree. I have a Solomon Allen married to Naomi Lane and later on, Nancy. But I can't seem to find him.

Thank you for your dedication. Sometimes it takes a bit more elbow grease and I appreciate greatly the strangers who take up the task for people and families they don't even know.

Please don't apologize. I appreciate how much effort you put into Find A Grave. It helps people like me, and keeps us straight. Thanks Paula Watson Bonin

RE: Lucinda Watson 64521922
Her father's name was Thomas Toland and her mother's name was Mary mnu Toland with various siblings. They were in the 1860 Oakland, Schuyler, Il census. Her marriage to Andrew Kemball (SP?) was on 5 Jul 1868 in McConough Il. Paula

RE: Lucinda Watson 64521922
On her wedding record to Kemball (sp?) her maiden name was given. When I went to the census, it was originally given as Loland, but corrected to Toland. Her father's military record was under Toland also. On her daughter's death cert., her maiden name was given as Bonner, and as her mother outlived her, I thought that might have been correct, but I didn't find any other trace of that name. I try to be as careful as possible, but I may have made a mistake somewhere. Please let me know if I did. Thank you for all your work on Find A Grave. Paula Watson Bonin

Thank you so much. I will make the corrections as you suggested. As I mentioned, I'm new to this and I'm still learning the protocols, but I want to do it right. Thanks for your help.

RE: Hart Hickox #24077109 photo request
Thank you so much BjJ! It is so sad to see stones deteriorating. I have so many in the family I'd love to replace that it is overwhelming. I appreciate the time you took to go check on this. I am in TN now, but am Illinois born & raised.

Jack Murray Memorial# 24901869
I am wondering if you can tell me or find out something about this memorial. There is no birth date, only a death date and the notation: "Killed by the Wabash train." Can you tell me if there is a stone with this bio on it or if this is from the cemetery record? If there is a stone can someone get me a picture? I would be glad to reimburse reasonable costs.

RE: Hart Hickox #24077109 photo request
Okay. I understand as I do the same thing. I take photos of entire cemeteries as well. Yes, please double check. They should be by their parents.

Schaefffer duplicate deleted
Hi.. Thanks for catching that duplicate.. I thought I had searched carefully before I created the memorial, but missed the listing somehow.
Nice job on Elwina's memorial too. Sorry to read both her grave and sister's grave are unmarked.
That is one HUGE cemetery!
